8/7/03 Carrot Cubed - The "quick" chassis rebuild of KC2
We worked KC2 hard at Modelworld 2003, and after about 6 fights, there
were signs of the real damge we'd taken from Disco and Mr Psyches. the
chassis had hairline cracks, as well as whole members bent beyond repair,
so we decide it was time for another robot. I already had a new ram,
care of STORM, a 50x135, that I intended to run at full pressure. I
had new gearboxes and a pair of CIM2 motors,I had a set of Hawker SBS15
batteries, I even had a cellar full of new ERW steel for the chassis,
and money set aside for a set of RobotRus Speed controllers.... but
as with all things Robot wars it doesn't go tthat smoothly.
